STATEMENT BY PRIME MINISTER RESPECTING OWNERSHIP OF CANADIAN INDUSTRY


On the orders of the day:


PC

Jay Waldo Monteith (Progressive Conservative Party Caucus Chair)

Progressive Conservative

Hon. J. W. Monteith (Perth):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Prime Minister. In view of the government's growing apprehension over foreign ownership of Canadian companies, as revealed by the return to the cabinet of the hon. member for Davenport, the setting up of still another committee and the promise of the Prime Minister on television last night in respect of yet another white paper, is it the intention of the government to reject any future guide lines issued from Washington to firms operating in Canada?

Mr. Monteith:

Mr. Speaker, the Prime Minister in very ringing terms suggested last night that foreign enterprise must be subject to Canadian law only and responsive to Canadian policy. I wonder whether the Prime Minister could not be a little firmer in his reply to the effect that they will not be subject to any future guide lines from Washington.

Mr. Pearson:

Mr. Speaker, how could you be firmer than say "under Canadian law only and consistent with Canadian policy"?

Mr. T. C. Douglas (Burnaby-Coquitlam):

Mr. Speaker, I also wish to ask the Prime Minister a question with respect to the telecast he made to the Canadian people last night in which it appeared that the Prime Minister was trying to ride two horses moving in opposite directions.

Mr. Douglas:

I want to ask the Prime Minister about the statement to the effect that the objective of the government is to have Canadians own and control much more of our industry, and that for this purpose the government is going to pursue a policy of marshalling a greater measure of Canadian investment in Canadian industry. I would ask the Prime Minister whether th:s statement is a pious hope, or whether the government intends this year to introduce a legislative program to give effect to this pronouncement.
